Miller Children’s “Lights Up Blue” for Autism Awareness Month
The Stramski Children’s Development Center at Miller Children’s is a comprehensive center that cares for children—from birth to age 21—with behavioral and developmental conditions, such as autism, Fragile X, ADHD/ADD, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, behavioral sleep conditions, craniofacial abnormalities and cleft lip and palate. The Stramski Center often serves as the transitional care center for infants and toddlers, who have developmental delay following hospitalization in either the NICU or PICU—many times following the child’s care for years.
Comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care at the Stramski Center includes Behavioral and Neurodevelopment, Craniofacial, Sleep Disorders, High Risk Infant Follow-Up, Genetics, and Fragile X programs that are designed to help manage a child’s illness and improve their developmental outcomes. The Stramski Center has a unique Craniofacial core team that works closely with plastic surgery to repair cleft lip and palate. The Stramski Center also houses an International Adoption Program that provides consultation, evaluation and counseling to families that are in the process of adopting a child from another country. The Stramski Children’s Developmental Center receieves tremendous community support, especially from the Steel Magnolias and the Memorial Medical Center Foundation.
